Weird and Whacky Wednesdays’

[WR101 Prompt Series] Weird and Whacky Wednesdays' – Prompt #11

The theme for this week is a kind of ‘character versus plot’. I have provided two options below, challenging you to explore other ways of working. If you enjoy to map out a story before you add characters to the landscape, try using option B. If the opposite is true and you don’t normally stick to a set plan, why not try it out?

The daily prompts will finish early this week, because I have a month long theme planned for August. As this begins Friday, the last prompts for this round will be tomorrow.

a) Plot breakdown/Storyline

Stasis: A group of friends, thrown together by circumstance and the same level of parental neglect, decide to move in together.

Trigger: The foursome push boundaries and experiment in a whole host of ways. At least one member of the group is an amateur scientist and concocts a potion that will render them invisible to the outside world. Obviously the experiment goes wrong and each of them appear to be missing at least one part of their body

The quest: The group seek help from a university professor when it becomes clear the side effect is permanent.

Surprise: During the course of the professor’s experimentation new changes occur – unexpected fluctuations in the power of the missing limbs.

Critical choice: They must decide whether to go public and seek the help of other experts in the field, while making tons of cash.

Reversal: Unexpectedly the foursome disappear. The professor uses what he knows to attempt recovery.

The resolution of the piece is entirely up to you.

b) Character Description

Name: Theresa Green

Nickname: Tree

Age: 69

Hair colour: White

Height: 6ft 1″

Complexion: Pale

Personality traits: Strong, loyal and dependable. She is a task master and heavily involved in the environment.

[WR101 Prompt Series] Weird and Whacky Wednesdays' – Prompt #9

The theme for this week is all about the song and requires you to  write a short story based on a song title. You don’t have to base it on the lyrics. As long as it’s linked to the appropriate genre, and includes an interpretation of the song, you’re good to go!

The song title for Wednesday is:

A Horse With No Name (America).

 

[WR101 Prompt Series] Weird and Whacky Wednesdays' – Prompt #8

The theme for this week is in the form of a story title. The title, which you will find below, must also be used in the opening sentence. The word count should be 500 words or less.

So here’s your weird and whacky story title for Wednesday:

The Grand Slam

[WR101 Prompt Series] Weird and Whacky Wednesdays' – Prompt #7

The theme for his week is in the form of a final sentence. All you need to do is weave a ‘weird and whacky’ tale which concludes with the following sentence:

“By the time it got to her turn, she was knee deep in regret.”

 

[WR101 Prompt Series] Weird and Whacky Wednesdays' – Prompt #6

This week the theme is based on dialogue, so each day I will post the opening line and all you need to do is continue from there. It’s a dialogue only prompt, which can be challenging, but also a lot of fun.

So, your whacky opener for Wednesday is:

“What do you mean, it’s gone?”

Enjoy!dialogue

NB: I will be taking a break from running the daily prompts at the end of this week. The next series, and a new theme, will begin on the 1 July 2014.
